    Oops, that may have been an oldie. How about this, then: one of the wisest things any parent ever told me was that when you go from 2 kids to 3, you switch from a man-to-man defense to a zone.

    I enjoy fishing. I define fishing as drinking beer in a rowboat on a sunny day, about 20 yards from shore. There, I think I'm caught up - game thread started early and I didn't.

    We must be really anxious for Twins baseball if we're already up to 23 posts before the lineups are announced.
    You can come up with statistics to prove anything. Forty percent of all people know that.

    OK... When it rains... The Worms in an effort to avoid the water come out of the ground.

    If... Worms make effort to avoid water... How do Fish know that they like eating them?

    And... If Cats avoid water... And they do... How do Cats know that they like eating Fish?

    The questions we run across in life are vast and difficult.

    LOL... We are simply sitting in the left field stands... Waiting for the game to start.

    A subtle distinction. We're anxious for Twins baseball, not necessarily "Twins baseball."

    I think underwater must be an interesting place to view.

    All the Different plant species... Different kinds of fish... Big and Small. A collection of different items that are accidentally and purposely dropped from boats... Jimmy Hoffa and Homeowners hit hard by the housing bubble collapse.

    I know an old joke about a catfish and an Iraqi woman.
    There isn't enough defense on the planet to justify giving 500+ PA to a guy who can barely OPS .600.

    Nooooooooooo!

    No wait, make it a challenge - come up with a punchline that doesn't have to do with whiskers (which would get the winner banned).

    OK... Umm...

    1. A Catfish has a better chance of having to pay an electric bill.
    2. You don't have to smoke an Iraqi Woman for improved flavor.
    3. A Catfish has Barbels... An Iraqi Woman has Barbarians.
    4. Catfish are known as an invasive species... An Iraqi Woman is known as an invaded species.
    5. In terms of diet... Catfish are scavengers... In terms of diet... Iraqi Woman are scavengers. OK... No Difference with that one. Move on to #6.
    6. Women make up 65% of the population in Iraq... Catfish make up 30%
    7. Iraqi Women must wear black clothing and a veil in public... Catfish shop at JC Penney.

    I was trying to get to 10 but that's all I got... I apologize for failing.

    I feel like we should give Correia a couple of at bats here and there. He has only grounded in 1 double play in his career. Give him a shot!

    Ok... I thought of one more.

    8. Finding a Catfish in Northern Ontario is very common... Finding an Iraqi Woman in Northern Ontario... You have to document it and notify the Department of Natural resources.
